post #61 of 77
I am bummed, because it seems like the costs for HB are sky high here. I'll be paying $5,500 (which is actually lower than I thought it was -I just re-checked the paperwork) for liscened direct entry midwife.

Plus, we will pay $150 for the birth tub and whatever a doula who will provide assistance during an entire labor and post-natal care (maybe a few days to a week?) will cost (I'm thinking $1k or so).

Nothing is covered under my HMO, although my midwife will submit it for reimbursement; it doesn't hurt to try.
